'Tumor Paint' Research Of Pediatric Oncologist Jim Olson Featured In Short Film -- A Sundance Festival Semifinalist
Date:11/27/2012

h the laboratory studies, Tumor Paint will enable surgeons to distinguish cancer tissue from non-cancerous tissue in real time as they operate. The ultimate goal is to save lives while also reducing problems caused by surgical removal of normal tissue in critical areas.

Another potential use for Tumor Paint is early detection of various forms of skin cancer. Olson and colleagues have demonstrated that it can light up non-pigmented skin cancers, which are sometimes difficult to detect and pose a greater threat to the patient if they are not detected early.

Olson gratefully points out that none of this research would have been possible without the support of private donors. "The work on Tumor Paint was funded primarily through financial gifts made to Fred Hutch and Seattle Children's Hospital by individuals, families and businesses that place their trust in our researchers to invent and develop new lifesaving therapies," he said.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch's pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer with minimal side effects. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation's first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women's Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Private contributions are essential for enabling Fred Hutch scientists to explore novel research opportunities that lead to important medical breakthroughs.
